we played the “wish i were an artist game” which involves trying to draw each other…here are the worst drawings of the evening:
and here are the best…
on sunday i challenged the children of the congregation to come up with the seven sayings of Jesus from the cross. i preached on “Father, forgive them…” the challenge is to search the four gospels and find the other six – you can e-mail them or write them down and bring them on sunday. the one rule is that you can’t use any other tools except for the Bible. there will be cool prizes for those who succeed.
The Committee’s general policy in dealing with archaic language is to replace as much of it as we can with ordinary, contemporary English. This is in line with Guideline #5, namely, to sing God’s praises using “intelligible” words. We think that using understood, modern language is especially important for our children and young people in our churches. It also helps those who are new to the Christian faith.
“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”
Look forward to seeing you tomorrow night at 7:30 for more growth in our walk with Christ! We will also be hearing about our exciting Games Night coming up with the other URCs in the area on April 15. Don’t forget your folders, and use tonight to finish up the devotional work to prepare for our lesson.
